We stopped to get a scoop of ice cream on Saturday, but we fell head over heels in love with a dog, a shop, and peanut butter pie.
All of the elements in my weekend fun look have been part of my collection for a long while. I rarely shop for anything new, but I hope to inspire you to be more creative with your existing wardrobe by sharing how I wear items repeatedly. Here and here are similar jackets, and a similar tank is here. The jeans are here. A similar bag is here. Similar shoes are here.
This summer, I tried a lovely new pale pink nail color called ‘Baby, Take a Vow’ by OPI here. A pale color suddenly feels more modern than the red color I’ve worn for years.
There is a stunning view of Beech Mountain from the church grounds.
After another delightful lunch on the back deck of Bodegas Kitchen & Wine Bar, with Cameron as our waiter, we decided to visit a new spot for dessert.
We have driven past the Linville River Mercantile many times but had never stopped. I’m so glad we finally visited this magical location. We are already planning our next visit very soon. I couldn’t wait to share these pictures with you!
This goofy fluffy ball of love is an Aussiedoodle, a mixed Australian shepherd and poodle dog breed. Within fifteen seconds, I was utterly smitten with this sweet pup!
Mr. Mickey is seated in the garden, enjoying our delightful banana pudding and peanut-butter chocolate pie choices. Flowers, ferns, moss, fruit trees, fall decor, and fountains edged the stone path to the front door.
We were captivated by this delightful garden and shop. The husband and wife team, who have owned and operated this magical place for seventeen years, couldn’t have been more pleasant or friendly. The wife bakes all the desserts! They are the embodiment of sweet southern hospitality.
